Servings: 12 pancakes
Calories: 166kcal


  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup toasted quinoa flour
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot starch
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • cups non-dairy milk of choice
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • ½ cup dairy-free dark chocolate chunks or ½ dark chocolate bar chopped (plus more for serving)
  • Gluten-free nonstick cooking spray or coconut oil for greasing the pan
  • Pure maple syrup for serving


  • Preheat a griddle over medium-low heat. Whisk together the flaxseed meal and water in a small bowl and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flours, arrowroot starch, baking powder, coconut sugar, and salt.
  • Beat together the milk and coconut oil in a separate bowl. Add the flax mixture and beat to combine. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix until a smooth batter forms. Fold in the chocolate chunks.
  • Lightly grease the griddle. Ladle ¼ cup of batter onto the griddle and repeat until you have filled the pan. Cook the pancakes until small bubbles begin to form, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes, until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack and repeat with the remaining batter.
  • Serve pancakes warm with maple syrup and additional chocolate shavings, if desired.
